Welcome to Thames Valley IVC Meetup

Friendly Multi-Activity Social Club

We are a friendly multi-activity club that organises a range of social, cultural, leisure and sporting activities. Most of our members are graduates, professionals and like minded people living the Reading, Berkshire, and surrounding areas.

Wide Range of Activities
As well as pub evenings & meals out, there are BBQs & parties, theatre & cinema trips, skittles & ten pin bowling, walks & cycle rides. We have also organised music evenings & play readings, museum & country house visits, glow worm hunts, a balloon flight, and visit to Go Ape (a high wire adventure course).

Run by our Members
We are run by our members for our members, who are encouraged to take part in organising events. If you join you can organise the type of events that you would like to take part in, either something you enjoy already or perhaps something new that you would like to try for the first time.

Part of a Nationwide Association of IVCs
Thames Valley IVC is part of the Association of Inter-Varsity Clubs ( (aIVC), a nationwide association of about 40 similar clubs with around 4000 members across the UK. If you join our club you can go away on national events organised by other IVCs, such as holidays abroad, weekends away, or just day events. We also organise joint events with some of our neighbouring IVCs and share events with each other.

Welcoming New Members
Anyone over 18 who would like to meet new people and make new friends in a relaxed social club atmosphere is welcome to join. If you are wondering if you would fit in then the easiest way to find out is to join up and come along to an event to see what the club is like.
